Coronavirus (COVID-19) Patient/Carer Notice

Welcome to Panch Day Surgery Centre, Victoria

Panch Day Surgery Centre is specifically equipped for surgical procedures that require more specialised care than is offered in an outpatient clinic but does not require an overnight stay. This currently includes a number of ophthalmic procedures, but we are also happy to consider complementary specialties.

Designed with a modern, contemporary feel, Panch Day Surgery Centre has the only dedicated eye surgery theatre with the latest technology in the inner northern suburbs of Melbourne.

We are located in the Corporate One building within the Bell City Complex, giving us access to a wide range of facilities including 600 car park spaces, cafes and restaurants. Panch Day Surgery Centre has secured a special rate with the Mantra hotel in Bell City, should an overnight stay be required.

The Panch Day Surgery Centre team is committed to exceeding the expectations of our patients and their families. We believe that exceptional care goes hand-in-hand with improving patient health outcomes. Therefore, we go above and beyond to provide our patients with a friendly, welcoming and stress-free environment.
